Developed countries in the world are introducing new reforms, especially in education, integrated with the 21st-century skills that many organizations have announced. In line with these goals, one of the targets set by the Ministry of National Education in our country with the 2023 Vision Document is design skill workshops. The aim of this study is to determine the criteria for establishing the Design and Skill Workshops targeted with the 2023 Vision Document in primary and secondary schools and to present a scientific study on how to create them in schools with application examples. The first stage of the study is the type of descriptive analysis. The criteria of the two workshops determined in the first stage were determined by expert opinions and the workshops were tried to be established in the school determined within the framework of these criteria. In order to achieve these aims of the research, quantitative and qualitative data were collected and analyzed. The qualitative data obtained in the research were used to explain the quantitative data and to ensure internal consistency. For this reason, "exploratory sequential design", one of the mixed research methods, was used in the research. For this reason, after the establishment of two sample workshops in Stage 2, the knowledge and skills of the students who received training from this workshop were analyzed with post-application self-evaluation forms, and the letters containing their feelings and thoughts about the workshops were analyzed with the Maxqda 2020 program. Thus, the results about the effectiveness of the workshop establishment criteria in gaining skills were revealed and evaluated. According to the findings obtained in the workshop studies; It has been seen that the students enjoy the workshops, improve their self-confidence, and contribute to the development of psychomotor, cognitive, affective and language skills. It has been seen that design and skill workshops have important contributions to students' acquisition of targeted 21st-century skills. It has been seen that the targeted gains in the modular programs developed in the workshops are gained by the students and reveal their existing skills of the students. The criteria of the workshop, which is planned to be opened according to the possibilities, should be determined by considering the interests, wishes and abilities of the students in schools, and workshops should be established in parallel with this criterion and carried out by teachers who are experts in their fields.
